If you’re wondering where to watch Copa America on US TV, we have the answers you’re looking for.
Last updated: August 12, 2020
As the oldest international soccer competition, Copa America is certainly must-watch television for sports fans. The 104-year-old tournament generally consists of teams from South America. These CONMEBOL teams are sometimes also joined by invited international clubs as well.
The United States Men’s National Team, Mexico, Japan, and Qatar have all featured in the prestigious competition in recent years.
Originally scheduled to be played in the summer of 2020, for the 2021 Copa America, Australia will join Qatar as the two invited teams to join the rest of the CONMEBOL nations.
Here in the United States, no decision has been reached yet about who will broadcast Copa America 2021 in English or Spanish. For the last Copa America, ESPN+ televised the Copa America in both English and Portuguese languages, while NBC’s Telemundo aired the same matches in the Spanish-language on their channel.
World Soccer Talk reported in January 2020 that Telemundo was interested in bidding to acquire the Copa America rights for the now-scheduled 2021 tournament. But with COVID-19 happening in 2020, the whole world has been turned upside down.
We hope to hear a decision on where to watch Copa America on US TV by the spring of 2021.
If it is ESPN Plus, ESPN+ also currently provides access to Bundesliga, Serie A, Coppa Italia, UEFA Nations League, League Cup, FA Cup, Championship, League One, League Two, U.S. Open Cup, International Champions Cup, Supercoppa Italiana, Eredivisie, Danish Superliga, Chinese Super League, Indian Super League, Australian A-League, Sweden’s Allsvenskan, as well as some out-of-market MLS and USL matches.
If it is Telemundo, the Spanish-language channel carries the television rights to Liga MX, CONCACAF Champions League, and some Premier League matches as well.
ESPN+ costs $5.99 per month. Telemundo is a free-to-air television network that can be found on many different cable/satellite/streaming services.
ESPN+ is available on Apple and Android devices, Samsung Smart TVs, Roku, Oculus Go, Fire TV, Google Chromecast, Playstation 4, and Xbox One consoles.

Nothing beats gathering with fellow compatriots with a pint or two and cheering on your team.
